Dr. Aseem Desai is a cardiologist and heart rhythm specialist in Orange County, California. He did his medical training at Stanford University and was an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Chicago.
Dr. Desai has a unique understanding of all sides of the healthcare system. He has personally dealt with and managed his own illness for years, and he feels a deep empathy with family members of patients, having lost both of his parents to sudden death.
Dr. Desai’s passion for connecting with people has allowed him to increase heart health awareness through peer-reviewed scientific publications, speaking engagements, blogs, and social media. He provides personalized care based on the statement: “Doctor, if I were a family member of yours, what would you recommend?” When he’s not helping patients, he enjoys spending time with his family, singing, playing guitar, reading, and yoga.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
